Alfa Romeo is leading the on-shore action at this week’s 2017 J/70 European Championship as car sponsor of the event for the very first time.
Powered by an all-new 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine capable of achieving 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds, Alfa Romeo will be offering visitors the chance to test drive the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the marque’s award-winning sports saloon. Featuring innovative technology and distinctive Italian styling, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is designed with the driver at its heart. Visitors will also be able to get behind the wheel and experience the high performance Alfa Romeo 4C.
Hosted at the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Southampton, the Alfa Romeo logo will also be showcased on both sides of the 42 J/70 boats taking part in the regattas.
Andrew Tracey, Country Manager at Alfa Romeo UK, said: “The Alfa Romeo Giulia has set pulses racing since its debut, impressing with its beautiful Italian design, best in class performance and advanced technology. We’ve delighted to offer spectators of the J/70 European Championship – the fastest growing sailing class in the world – the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the award-winning Alfa Romeo range.”
